It is by chance — very fortunate and wonderful chance — that I one day stumbled across the Style Like U YouTube channel.
Style Like U is a website/movement created by a mother & daughter duo, committed to promoting and proving that true style is not what you wear or how you look, but rather, self acceptance. To do this, co-creators Elisa and Lily interview and film prominent women of all races, ages, physiques, backgrounds, professions and sexual orientations in order to get to the essence of what makes them stylish — what makes them feel at home in their body, comfortable within their skin and, most importantly, how they got to a point where external physiques and intrinsic awareness were no longer synonymous or dependent on the other.
Their YouTube videos are encapsulating and simple, yet deeply vulnerable and very important.
I can personally vouch for the fact that spending an afternoon watching a few of their videos will leave you feeling both more confident within yourself, and more aware of the true definition of beauty.
Below are three of my personal favourite interviews for you to begin with, but don’t stop here — keep exploring, keep expanding, and keep spreading their message of a genuine path to #ConnectToConfidence.
Have you ever had that “Aha!” moment in your head, an idea that seemed too good to be true? Have you ever forgotten what that glorious idea was when losing your train of thought? Or maybe on the other hand, you can’t get the idea out of your head. You literally can’t seem to convert that dream into a reality. Either way, inspiration boards are here to help.
Inspiration boards are a collage of images that project the ideas or goals that would otherwise rest in your mind. By actively choosing images that represent and embody the goals you have set for yourself, you are creating a more feasible future. These visuals clearly define what you want to do, where you want to be and how to get there.

When I say Bootcamp, I hope you don’t think of army boots and a screaming drill sergeant. As a matter of fact, camouflage is making a huge comeback! Check out Lulu Lemon and the newest Zumba line.
For me, I had only done a couple bootcamp classes with my mom, but that was long ago. Before going I definitely underestimated what it. Boy was it a challenge! I was sore for a couple days after. But my core and muscles felt toned automatically!
